Soilman, I really like how you are equating adult expression of attraction towards children with brain damage.

Huh? I'm not sure I'm getting your logic. How many times will a young girl develop a beneficial relationship with an older, mentally retardard man who has made an oggling face to her as she happens by?



If a young girl who is working with meals-on-wheels happens to get an oggling expression from a mentally retardard man who she is deliverying to she would probably be understanding and not have an "ewww expression" because I'd expect her to be familar with the situation at hand.

Maybe the eww factor is some kind of biological instinct of self-preservation and rightly so.

Probably. But in some cases she wouldn't understand that the man was simply to control his face, due to being retarded, and might find the job makes her uncomfortable. And I wasn't talking about "ogling" but about fleeting facial expressions -- lack of "poker face."

Oh -- it is absolutely some kind of biological instinct with self-preservation factors involved. But whether it is "right" or "wrong" is outside the realm of evolutionary science. And whether it is good for self preservation -- maybe, maybe not. Sometimes our biological instincts do more harm than good. It may or may not be beneficial, in any particular case. For example the expression of sexual interest on the man's face is also a biological instinct, but it this case it does more harm to him than good.



We gain control over life when we learn to let each particular instinct work, or supress the instict, depending upon the situation.



I should have supressed my instinct to show dismay in my face, when I saw the fat boy with the Hawaain shirt. Even reflexes can be harmful. Take the knee-jerk reflex. If there is a hot iron on the path of your foot, the best course of action is to suppress your knee-jerk reflex. Reflexes, like instincts, are biologically statistically tied to self preservation. But they can never be described as either "good" or "bad." And in some circumstances, they can do more harm than good.

if she knows he is retardard then i think any well-meaning person would be understanding if not expect it. i'm sure the people who sent her would tell her what to expect.



but yeah, i'm sure there are young girls who make rude faces at people who are different; it's unfortunate, but part of being immature.

The difference is though is that one is an adult and the other is a child/teenager. Unless a person is retarded they should have full control of their emotional expressions. Do you really think retarded mens inability to control facial expressions is whats at issue anyway? That seems like an attempt to distract. Granted the idea that the type of men that would ogle young girls or discuss it on an open forum may be retarded or have some type of brain damage is an attractive assumption but I would be surprised if that is the case for most.

Do you have yourself on ignore? Sober up and read the post in that link (that's available for millions of kids to read) and then have your wife read it.

I work with the public in the summer and run across all kinds of people; fat, physically challenged sometimes I run into facial deformities, whatever. You make eye contact with another human being and you smile at them. It’s not rocket science; it doesn’t require great wisdom, just enough self-awareness to impart common courtesy.

I nominated her for post of the year, and that nomination was seconded. We'll have to wait until February to see if she walks away with it though.

I don't really know how I feel about this.. Boys thinking about me in that way usually creeps me out because I don't understand why on earth they would. I'm not a hottie whatsoever in my mind but recently I've been notcing more male attention. It cn be very flattering to see someone checking you out etc. It does seem a bit wrong to me for someone much older to be looking at me but as long as they don't come up to me I don't read to much into it.

catgurl " I'm not a hottie whatsoever in my mind but recently I've been notcing more male attention."



What causes attention by others can sometimes be unpredictable.



For example recently I was riding on the bus and the bus was fairly crowded, but there were several empty seats left. I had my backpack taking up the seat next to me. This strikingly beautiful young woman gets on the bus. She must be about 25, by the way -- not no teenager. And I am not looking at her or paying any attention to her whatsoever. I notice several male heads, and female heads too, turn to look at her, but mine is not among them. She gets on, I look once at what is going on, and then I forget about it. I don't have any reason to think she won't easily find an empty seat somewhere, or any reason to continue looking at her.



Next thing I know, she is standing right next to the seat with my backpack on it, and staring alternately at me, and at my backpack. I assure you, I'm not a hottie whatsoever in my mind. So why did she want that seat if she could have sat next to one of several other men or women? I have no idea. Maybe precisely because I ignored her, and didn't even have the courtesy to pick up my backpack, when she walked by. Only after she stood there for about a full minute, ogling me, and alternately, my backpack, did I get the hint, and pick up my backpack and put it on my lap. Yes, she just wanted the seat -- but there were a bunch of completely empty seats. Why she didn't want to take one of the empty seats, I don't know. Where the men in the next seats ogling her? I don't know. Maybe because getting my seat with my backpack on it, was a challenge, while getting a seat to one of the other men on the bus would have been real easy.

I'm sorry, I'm not sure I'm understanding that sentence. I think being a considerate person often means inhibiting personal desires, when expression of those desires is inappropriate.

All the sentence means (sorry its confusing) is that a person can have their personal desires with out expressing them. Being considerate does not stop/inhibit someone from feeling anything.

That post wasn't directed at you, and I got your point several posts ago. You think I'm a pervert, and that I deserve your derision. Got it.

I'm sure your intentions were completely innocent, and intended entirely for the informational purposes of the VB community.

I think everyone's made their point and there's nothing good that can come out of continuing this. I'm going to close it.
